A woman from Bridport has been given a national award for her small business Easy Curry.

Sarah Ali-Choudhury won the award for New Kid on the Block at the Small Awards Ceremony in London this week.

The Small Awards launched this year and recognises the achievements of small businesses in the UK across ten categories. The ceremony was presented by former British Bake Off host Sue Perkins. 

Sarah's business, Easy Curry Ltd, found fame last year when she appeared on a hit Channel 4 cookery show. During her time on the show Sarah cooked for two-time Michelin Star awarded restaurateur Michael Caines MBE, and Britain's most acclaimed chefs and food writer, Prue Leith CBE.

Over the course of the year Sarah has appeared at the Bridport Food Festival, where she did her very first cookery demonstration. Since then she has demonstrated at some of the UK's biggest food festivals, where she has held demonstrations on preparing quick Indian curries that are packed with flavour, spices and fresh ingredients. As well as appearing at Bristol's Foodie Festival and Taste of the South, Sarah regularly makes appearances on That's Solent TV and Channel S TV.  She was also a finalist in ‘The Rising Star category’  at The Bournemouth Tourism Awards in March.

Sarah said: "I am overjoyed and incredibly humbled to have won this award. It has been a very busy but exciting year for me and my business. I am a big fan of Sue Perkins and of course Bake Off, so receiving my award and a hug from her was just a dream come true.

"I have no plans to slow down and will be using this year's British Beach Polo Championships on the stunning Sandbanks beach, to officially launch my event catering business."

Sarah prepares colourful and flavoursome, authentic Asian dishes at business events and private dining experiences along the south coast.   She will be demonstrating in the cookery theatre at the Bridport Food Festival on 17 June.
